Published Aug 21, 2020Disgraced Full House actress Lori Loughlin is heading to prison for her role in the college admissions scandal.
Today she was sentenced to two months in prison, while her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, will serve five months.
Loughlin also will serve two years of supervised release and must perform 100 hours of community service. She was also ordered to pay a fine of $150,000 USD. Giannulli will have to also pay a $250,000 fine, serve two years of supervised release and do 250 hours of community service.
Both must surrender to the US Bureau of Prisons before 2 p.m. on November 19 to serve their respective prison sentences.
As NBC News reports, Loughlin told District Court Judge Nathaniel Gorton that she will "redeem myself" and "use this experience as a catalyst to do good and give back for the rest of my life."
Apparently, she had been reading from a prepared statement, though she wiped her eyes and reportedly went off script in her final words to the judge.
"Your honour I am truly, profoundly and deeply sorry," she said. "I am ready to face the consequences and make amends."
Loughlin and her husband had initially pleaded not guilty to the charges against them. They were arguably the highest-profile parents to admit to paying the college admissions scheme's mastermind, William Rick Singer, $500,000 USD to get their daughters into the University of Southern California.
